Day 235/365

Ken Done glasses, earrings & brooch from Japan, vintage Kaye Scott jacket (from op shop), belt (stolen from LiP for the day, Munk shorts (op shop), fishnet / plain stocking match, Fluevogs, Ken Done bag (donated by Susan).

I'm off to university today to deliver a paper on comics to an academic inspiration of mine. It would be fair to say I'm feeling *excitement* and *anxiety* in equal degrees. For the anxiety, I've got this kitsch-supremo Japanese kitten brooch. I mean, how could anyone say something academically-brutal (even if it is constructive) to me when I'm wearing such a cute brooch?! For the excitement, I'm being inspired by this *amazing* vintage Kaye Scott jacket, which I found in an op shop in Kensington. Mustard-colouring, pattern-clash, bat-wing sleeves and oversizing - could you get anymore '80s?!!

So today we might ask, was it Colonel Mustard in the Conservatory? No! It's Mistress Mustard in the classroom!

I've never thought of YOU as a 'brown' (mustard) type of gal. Wow! that looks great. I don't know, remember, who Kaye Scott was but that is one fab jacket.

Oh how I LOLed when that silly looking cat appeared in my screen as I scrolled. I hope it saved you from the academic.

Dear Miss Jackie. Dont forget leg warmers were very 1980's so when you take to the sleeves with sizzors its a good idea to keep them and re-model them when you need a leg warmer or two.
I love your kitty brooch reminds me of a dear little pussy I used to know.
Love your style. Libby xx
